And, because we’re feeling proud and, yes, privileged as hell to be able to honor these very creative people, we posting this same list on the PEOPLE’S PILOT News Page as well.
Our thanks to everyone who entered. We had an extremely high-scoring group of entrants. Literally any one of the series concepts we received could be, in my mind, a successful television series.
And, for the record, this is the highest-scoring group of Semi-Finalists in the history of this contest. In fact, and I’m really impressed by this, five years ago the score received by the lowest-scoring Semi-Finalist in the 21st running of the PP would have been high enough to win.
Give yourselves a great big hand.
And be ready to come back in two weeks to see which of the above have made it to the Finals.
(Sorry it has to take that long, but next week belongs to the SPEC SCRIPTACULAR Semi-Finalists. They too deserve their day in the sun!)
